The Brewers announced that they signed right-hander Jairo Asencio to a minor league deal that includes an invitation to Spring Training. Praver/Shapiro represents the reliever.
Asencio spent this past season pitching for the Indians and Cubs. He posted a 4.91 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 40 1/3 innings out of the bullpen. The Indians purchased him from the Braves this March and the Cubs claimed him off of waivers two months later.
